For Now, Read Aloud is working like charm. It would be much better if there was an option to read only "selected text" on the webpage [instead of whole page, which is set by default]

Thank you for the suggestion, @Deleted.  I will forward it on to the team that does Read Aloud.

@Elliot Kirk thank you so much! I use text to speech to proofread emails and other documents. Hopefully, we will be able to read aloud the selected text like the classic version of Edge. Thanks for listening. 

I just accessed the Read Aloud feature for the first time today. It's great! And it can become greater if we could select to read aloud certain parts of a webpage. Right now, I need to wait and hear the rereading of titles and menu heading wordings each time.
Thanks once again to the team for great work!
